Jan Vertonghen propelled Tottenham into the top four of the Barclays Premier League with a second-half strike that finally broke stubborn Swansea and sealed a 1-0 win.

The Belgium defender fired his first league goal for Spurs following his £12million move from Ajax when he showed composure to sweep a free-kick from Kyle Walker past Gerhard Tremmel (Video).

There was acrimony deep into injury time as Swansea striker Michu was caught by Hugo Lloris as the goalkeeper punched the ball clear and fell heavily to the floor. While those players closest to the stricken Michu furiously waved to the touchline for medical assistance, Spurs played on through substitute Andros Townsend who was confronted by Chico Flores.
